Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. Security update: html2ps contained various insecure open()calls inthe perl script which allowed evil constructed HTML inputto executearbitrary commands when converted to postscript.Since html2ps is used as a printfilter for HTML an updateis stronglyrecommended.
